Made expertly, in the traditional champagne method (second fermentation in the bottle), Pearl is a superb example of a medium-dry sparkling sake. It is made from rice grown on the brewery’s own farm and polished to 45% making this a Junmai Daiginjo – the highest class of sake.
Pearl is also lightly cloudy and makes quite an impression when opened: the bubbles rise and gently mix the sake, turning it from clear to cloudy!
Pearl has a delicate fizz with fine bubbles and an elegant, silky texture. Medium-light bodied with crisp green apple, pear & creamy peach flavours. Enjoy as an aperitif or paired with delicate flavours.
Ingredients: rice, water, yeast, koji
